Pakistan batsman Haris Sohail has attributed his chronic knee problems to the fact that he was “operated on incorrectly”.
Haris has been in and out of the Pakistan team due to his knee issues, but he has been included in the World Cup squad as a result of his excellent performances recently.
In the five-match ODI series against Australia, the 30-year-old was Pakistan’s highest run-scorer with 291 runs, which included two centuries, at an average of 72.75.
“Since the Australia series, my confidence and form is in a good place,” Haris was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo. “Over the past few days, I wasn’t feeling too great, but a match situation is different, and the [practice] match we played today, the ball felt great on the bat.
“What happened to me was I was operated on incorrectly, and I struggle because of that. Nobody wants to live through injuries, but as a sportsman, injuries do happen in cricket.
“Here, the media makes a big deal of injuries. If you look at Australia, every two series, one bowler or another is unfit. I bowl too, so please keep that in mind.
“I’m trying to complete my rehab properly and put my injury behind me once and for all. But because it was operated upon incorrectly, I do struggle with it sometimes.”
